    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    FVA is hosting an engagement session for Third Sector Partners to look at the Bairns' Hoose Model ahead of a potential partnership bid to become a pathfinder project in Fife. 

    Heather Bett (Fife Health & Social Care) will lead the session and it will be an opportunity for partners to find out more about the concept as well as helping to contribute and define Fife's approach to this work.

    Bairns’ Hoose is a model that Scotland is testing to provide holistic support to children who have been victims or witnesses of abuse, or are under the age of criminal responsibility whose behaviour may have caused harm. This is based on the European “Barnahus” (child house) model.

    The Bairns' Hoose model brings together in one setting:

    • child protection
    • health
    • recovery support/whole family support
    • justice

    The vision of a Bairns’ Hoose is that:

    All children in Scotland who have been victims or witnesses to abuse or violence, as well as children under the age of criminal responsibility whose behaviour has caused significant harm or abuse, will have access to trauma-informed recovery, support and justice.

    The Scottish Government has committed to develop test sites for delivery of Bairns' Hoose in Scotland, before scaling up nationally.

    The Bairns' Hoose model will be developed over a three-phased approach to ensure an informed and collaborative roll-out, alignment with other key policy objectives, and to allow for the appropriate workforce development where required and will be underpinned by stakeholder participation and iterative learning together through three key stages:

    • Phase 1 Pathfinders 2023-2025
    • Phase 2 Pilot 2025-2026
    • Phase 3 National Roll-out From 2027

    The Pathfinders will act as proof of concept for the Bairns' Hoose model in Scotland. Learning from the implementation of the Standards, alongside the roll-out of the Scottish Child Interview Model, will help provide a blueprint for a pilot of a national Bairns' Hoose model in Scotland.
